SmtpClient.SendAsyncCancel Method

Cancels an asynchronous operation to send an e-mail message.

Namespace: System.Net.Mail
Assembly: System (in system.dll)

public:
void SendAsyncCancel ()
public void SendAsyncCancel ()
public function SendAsyncCancel ()
Not applicable.

Exception typeCondition

ObjectDisposedException

This object has been disposed.

Use the SendAsyncCancel method to cancel a pending SendAsync operation. If there is mail waiting to be sent, this method releases resources used to store the mail. If there is no mail waiting to be sent, this method does nothing.

The following code example demonstrates sending an e-mail message asynchronously. The user has the option to cancel the mail if it has not been sent.

#using <System.dll>
using namespace System;
using namespace System::Net;
using namespace System::Net::Mail;
using namespace System::Net::Mime;
using namespace System::Threading;
using namespace System::ComponentModel;

static bool mailSent;

static void SendCompletedCallback(Object^ sender, AsyncCompletedEventArgs^ e)
{
    // Get the unique identifier for this asynchronous 
    // operation.
    String^ token = (String^) e->UserState;

    if (e->Cancelled)
    {
        Console::WriteLine("[{0}] Send canceled.", token);
    }
    if (e->Error != nullptr)
    {
        Console::WriteLine("[{0}] {1}", token, 
            e->Error->ToString());
    } else
    {
        Console::WriteLine("Message sent.");
    }
    mailSent = true;
}

int main(array<String^>^ args)
{
    if (args->Length > 1)
    {
        // Command line argument must the the SMTP host.
        SmtpClient^ client = gcnew SmtpClient(args[1]);
        // Specify the e-mail sender.
        // Create a mailing address that includes a UTF8 
        // character in the display name.
        MailAddress^ from = gcnew MailAddress("jane@contoso.com",
            "Jane " + (wchar_t)0xD8 + " Clayton",
            System::Text::Encoding::UTF8);
        // Set destinations for the e-mail message.
        MailAddress^ to = gcnew MailAddress("ben@contoso.com");
        // Specify the message content.
        MailMessage^ message = gcnew MailMessage(from, to);
        message->Body = "This is a test e-mail message sent" +
            " by an application. ";
        // Include some non-ASCII characters in body and 
        // subject.
        String^ someArrows = gcnew String(gcnew array<wchar_t>{L'\u2190', 
            L'\u2191', L'\u2192', L'\u2193'});
        message->Body += Environment::NewLine + someArrows;
        message->BodyEncoding = System::Text::Encoding::UTF8;
        message->Subject = "test message 1" + someArrows;
        message->SubjectEncoding = System::Text::Encoding::UTF8;
        // Set the method that is called back when the send
        // operation ends.
        client->SendCompleted += gcnew
            SendCompletedEventHandler(SendCompletedCallback);
        // The userState can be any object that allows your 
        // callback method to identify this send operation.
        // For this example, the userToken is a string constant.
        String^ userState = "test message1";
        client->SendAsync(message, userState);
        Console::WriteLine("Sending message... press c to" +
            " cancel mail. Press any other key to exit.");
        String^ answer = Console::ReadLine();
        // If the user canceled the send, and mail hasn't been 
        // sent yet,then cancel the pending operation.
        if (answer->ToLower()->StartsWith("c") && mailSent == false)
        {
            client->SendAsyncCancel();
        }
        // Clean up.
        delete message;
        client = nullptr;
        Console::WriteLine("Goodbye.");
    }
    else
    {
        Console::WriteLine("Please give SMTP server name!");
    }
}
